Nature

Kanagawa is blessed with beautiful coastlines, green mountains and lakes with clear water. The change of seasons can be observed from various settings, not only in the wild, but also in parks, Japanese gardens, temples and shrines. Sea-bathing and marine sports can be enjoyed on the Miura peninsula and Shonan beach as well as other outdoor activities in Tanzawa, Oyama and Hakone.
